Med & Craig, can I come to your house?


We're going out to dinner tonight, I'm excited!
I found a spankin' new Italian restaurant that just,
and I mean just as in their first night of service was the 13th !!!
They make all of their pasta, by hand, no dried or frozen stuff.
SQUUEEEEE!!
Did I say that I'm excited?

It's that time of the year when the price of swordfish drops, and this week it's $6.99 / lb. for "ocean fresh" sword from the supermarket. Grilled sword, baked potatoes, and nuked broc. Life is good.

I had another late lunch, this time a killer BLT sammich from a restaurant I am not proud to say I went to -- Twin Peaks. Yeah, it is a cheesy place, but they make a really good BLT, and I drove past the place today, and got a craving for their BLT, and made a u-turn.

BTW, I wouldn't do that for Hooters. Their over floured and way overcooked wings suck, no matter who serves them to you.

Anyway, tonight will be grazing, again.

MEH!
First off, the handmade pasta, which didn't have that "nice" taste to it, was WAY over cooked too
Second, the Marinara tasted like straight Tomato Paste
Third, the bread was, meh
Fourth, the Meatballs---nope!
Fifth, the Chicken Parm had no taste
And last but not least of all, the service was not good at all.

Granted, they have only been in business for 5 days, but they own 4 other restaurants in the area and should know what they're about... that was disappointing!
Neither of us finished our food, but asked for boxes and then dumped them at the first trash bin we saw.
We won't be back there again, so sad.

I know that everyone's taste buds are different but as I watched the other tables around us, almost EVERY table ate only a few bites of their food, asked for a box and left.
There was no offer of dessert, coffee or an after dinner liqueur, never filled our water glasses, no grated cheese, or more bread, didn't ask if I wanted another glass of wine … I'll stop now
It was not a good experience

Man I hate that, hoping for a nice meal only to be disappointed.

We're having tandoori lamb cutlets with Bombay potatoes and fried cabbage and carrot. The cabbage thing works, believe me. Served with rhaita and date and tamarind chutney. Wife's fave meal..

Sorry to hear that. but it is Italian in Cowboyville. Most of my friends in Texas think Olive Garden is Italian food. There is an authentic Neapolitan pizza restaurant close to me, and it does a great business off those of us who live in Texas, but are not Texans. Texans want a stuffed crust pizza with triple cheese and four kinds of meats. Make it all-you can-eat for $4.99, like Cici's, and Texans love it. Sound anything like Cowboyland?
